After a hectic Thursday of media meltdowns reacting to President Trump’s press conference, the lunacy was still flowing on MSNBC’s Hardball. In less than 20 minutes, host Chris Matthews compared a “manic” Trump to Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men and Alger Hiss attempting to wiggle his way out of being deemed a Soviet spy.

Those comparisons weren’t without plenty of whining from the MSNBC pundit. Speaking to his first panel of the night, Matthews lamented that he’s attacking the whole media and “not...a reporter for making a mistake” because “[e]verybody makes mistakes and there are no angels in the press” or “devils.”
